Prétendre

The Subjunctivisor!

Does prétendre require the subjunctive?

Prétendre may require the subjunctive, depending on whether it is used affirmatively, negatively, or interrogatively:

Par exemple…

Il prétend que tu es plus paresseux que lui.
He claims that you are lazier than he is.

Il ne prétend pas que tu sois plus paresseux que lui.
He doesn’t claim that you are lazier than he is.

Est-ce qu’il prétend que tu sois plus paresseux que lui ?
Does he claim that you are lazier than he is?
